From the Classics-L list:
The members of the Diccionario Griego-Español project (DGE, CSIC, Madrid)
are pleased to announce the release of DGE
http://dge.cchs.csic.es/xdge/), first digital edition of the published
section (α-ἔξαυος) of our Lexicon. Although still in progress, the DGE,
written under the direction of Prof. F.R. Adrados, is currently becoming
the largest bilingual dictionary of ancient Greek: it already includes
about 60,000 entries and 370,000 citations of ancient authors and texts.
Simultaneously, we are releasing the edition of LMPG
http://dge.cchs.csic.es/lmpg/), the digital version of the *Lexicon of
Magic and Religion in the Greek Magical Papyri*, written by Luis Muñoz
Delgado (Supplement V of DGE). The digitization of this smaller Lexicon is
considered as a successful prototype of this ambitious digitization
initiative: further on DGE online will be improved with similar advanced
features, such as the implementation of a customized search engine. Any
critics and suggestions on that matter will be very welcome. We hope these
new open access dictionaries will be of your interest and will become, to
some extent, valuable tools for Ancient Greek studies.

James Spinti let us know that ...
Thanks for passing on this information, James. Daniel Riaño Rufilanchas formerly notified us of progress, but I think he's not now a member of BGreek and that he is no longer involved with the DGE project. The Australian lexicographical work led by Horsley and Lee came to a sad conclusion when government funding was withdrawn; it is good to see that this project is still making headway.The members of the Diccionario Griego-Español project (DGE, CSIC, Madrid) are pleased to announce the release of DGE online http://dge.cchs.csic.es/xdge/ first digital edition of the published section (α-ἔξαυος) of our Lexicon.
